David Taylor Helps Dillon Danis Prepare For ADCC Worlds

Dillon Danis and David Taylor may compete in different sports, but they are on a quest for the same goal -- to be the best in the world.

On Thursday, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu bad boy and rising MMA star Danis posted a picture of himself and Taylor, one of the nation's best wrestlers, on his Instagram account.

Among his laundry list of accomplishments, Taylor is a four-time Division I All-American, two-time NCAA champion, and two-time winner of the Hodge Trophy (given to the NCAA's best wrestler). While Taylor is currently working toward making the United States' world team in 2018 after narrowly missing out this year, he is also taking the time to work with Danis before he competes in the -88kg division at ADCC 2017 World Championships next week in Espoo, Finland.

"Magic Man" is undoubtedly the best wrestler we've seen Danis working with and is bound to improve his wrestling every time they are on the mat together. Danis has strong wrestlers such as Rustam Chsiev, James Brasco, and John Salter in his division, so he'll need to have his skills on the feet dialed in if he wants to win an ADCC world title.
